Welcome to Audiophile Magazine’s comprehensive guide on audio production, for those of us who aren’t working with studio-level budgets. Our guide, How To Build A Digital Music Production Studio On A Budget, is meant for the audio production enthusiast who wants to get great sound without absolutely destroying their bank account.

There are two parts to digital audio production, the hardware and the software. We’ll start with the hardware, going over the computers, interfaces, microphones, headphones, and speakers. Then we’ll continue with the software – your audio editing applications, DAWs, and other utilities, as well as techniques and formats.
